Default [HELP]Implement new languages to ROM. Donation availalbe

Hi guys,

Recently I bought couple of MTK based Smartphones from China, but I didn't realise they are coming with Chinese and English only. I have the language files that I want to import, but I am not sure how exactly I am supposed to include them into the ROM. I believe that I need to decompile, add the new language files and compile the ROM again, but I am not exactly sure how. I do not want to download already compiled multilanguage roms, but do one on my own, keeping all the original software that comes with the phones and only including couple of additional languages.

I am willing to make a small donation to the one who takes the time to explain everything to me step by step

Thanks in advance.

if I got you right, then first try to implement your language readability. for this:
1) copy your language font into /fonts directory
2) add font entry into /etc/fallback_fonts.xml
...(see already present lines of code to get an idea)
3) restart your phone
4) open a web page in your language to see if it is readable.
